EMPLOYMENT: Opportunities with the Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental multi-stakeholder organization, established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. Today, FSC is the leading forest management certification system in the world. FSC works by bringing people together to promote responsible forest management and to find solutions to the problems created by bad forestry practices. FSC does so by providing standard-setting, trademark assurance, accreditation services and business value for companies and organizations interested in responsible forestry.
Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
FSC is registered as an international NGO in Mexico, but has its operational headquarters in Bonn, Germany. FSC has 5 Regional Offices and is represented through National Offices or Representatives in 45 countries across the world.
FSC is currently recruiting for three new, Germany-based positions:
- Program Manager - Forest Management
- Network Liaison Officer
- Smallholder Support Manager
More information about all three positions is available here.
